130 students take part in second annual MLK Day

20 Jan

The second annual MLK Day of Service, sponsored by Student Affairs Programs and Multicultural Affairs, was a huge success – 130 student volunteers took part in 11 projects at nursing homes and senior centers, as well as helping to plan and execute the event. The opening ceremonies featured speaker Mabel Cannings, a local activist and author.

This year’s event was covered extensively by local media – seeing our students in the spotlight for actively engaging in service projects is always exciting! You can view some of the coverage here:

SFA’s MLK Day of Service is also provided additional financial support from North Carolina Campus Compact and the Corporation for National and Community Service. Each year, hundreds of universities take part in MLK service programs. This year, universities that received a grant from NCCC and CNCS engaged 11,554 volunteers in 520 service projects.
